The Third Rail is a bar located in a repurposed subway station. The bar is owned by John Hancock, the mayor of Goodneighbor, but is tended by a Mister Handy with a cockney accent named Whitechapel Charlie.
A singer named Magnolia performs frequently in the Third Rail, making it one of the only places in the entire Commonwealth with live entertainment. Also, MacCready, a potential companion, can be found here.
The Third Rail is a subway station, initially there's a small area with a bathroom to the right and the bouncer Ham. Down the stairs there's the bar, off to the right there's a back room.

Behind the scenes
- The station is based on the real-world State station. Like its real-world counterpart, the station is also located under the Old State House. However, markings on the wall designate the station as "Scollay Square."
- The term "Third Rail" is used by railway workers to call the conductor rail found on electrified railway lines such as those found in subways.
